  1. Contrary to Ebay's main platform, Marktplaats is safe for sellers; not so much for buyers. Insured shipping through PostNL usually takes one working day. Online payement in less than a minute. Costly products are usually physically inspected by the buyers first. If you happen to know someone in the Netherlands than this could be an alternative. Personally, I've been screwed twice as a buyer. Last month I made a bargain deal over a $1200 product, only to receive a middle of the night message − a couple of hours before I was about to pick it up − saying: "I've changed my mind and and want to sell my product for way more. Sorry for the hassle!"
  2. Canon 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern.
  3. Unfortunately, the low and mid-tier camera market is stuck in the mud. Quality wise, Sony is the McDonald's of the camera industry.
  4. I'm pretty sure Sony is able to mass-produce a cheap CCD-based consumer camera that can record 16-bit RAW internally, but it would screw their entire camera business.
  5. Too many people having too much time on their hands to look for the best and cheapest camera.
  6. The Sony IMX800 is rumoured to be a 1-inch sensor designed for phones. It is expected to make its debute soon. What does the future hold for dedicated consumer cameras if this rumour is true? https://gsmarena.com/rumor_the_huawei_p50_phones_will_be_the_first_to_use_sonys_1_imx800_sensor-news-47938.php https://twitter.com/RODENT950/status/1364507707907178496
  7. I suspect that the two primary reasons the image sensor market is dominated by Sony is because of: (1) shady business deals between Japanese tech companies and (2) a lack of competition from outsiders.

    What about yourself?

    If we are strictly speaking about image capturing, then probably not..

    With the abundance of online videos, is there anybody on here that ever feels like he/she is about to capture something redundant? There's so much stuff out there already...
  11. A 3 inch screen, no internal raw, no internal nd, and a bright red led instead of an evf...
  12. Here is an article that might give a glimpse into the (far distant) future of image capturing: https://www.nature.com/articles/492055a Here is a short video related to it:
  13. An image sensor that is able to capture photons similarly to film. This, of course, is kind of ridiculous, because film uses crystals such as silver halides in galatin coated on a film base.
  14. Unless we unexpectedly can come up with some sort of god-like AI system, or vastly superior and genetically modified beings, I do not foresee a top down solution to the mess we are in. Any thorough plan that threatens industrial life will be met with extreme hostility, especially from China, Russia and citizens over the world.
  15. Perhaps it is time for the established camera companies to finally come up with something that resembles a 21th century camera body. One that resembles a smartphone, but with the bells and whistles of a proper camera. Sleek, pocketable, low-profile, a wide range of wireless functions like wireless charging, with new and smaller lenses.
  16. The whole web experience seems to have gotten worse compared to 15 years ago in terms of bloatedness, genuine content, censorship, tracking and search results.
  17. $2,999.99 https://store.asus.com/us/item/202101AM120000009/ROG-Flow-X13-Ultra-Slim-2-in-1-Gaming-Laptop-Bundle%3A-ROG-XG-Mobile%2BRTX-3080-included
  18. Such a great image. Definitely not optimistic about 2021.
  19. The oldest preserved photograph (adjusted), by Nicéphore Niépce. Taken around 1826 using a box with a hole in it, a lens and a pewter plate coated with natural asphalt. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/View_from_the_Window_at_Le_Gras https://photo-museum.org/niepce-invention-photography/
